If you have ever attended any of my Motivational Talks, you would know – how huge a fan, I am, of these motivational one liners. They are funny, witty, smart and they do the job – in fewer words. And the writing bug bit me around 7 years ago. Ever since I have been coming up with my own too; albeit occasionally. The reason for sharing them here is – it’s a collection for you, my reader, to come back for some quick inspiration – whenever you feel that life has been kicking you harder than you deserve. Some of these motivational one liners though, might kick you harder while some are sympathetic (if you like sympathy, do read the first one carefully). Truth, sometimes, sounds harsh.
20 was such an important age for me. It felt like life was happening right then and there. I kind of felt that I was the center of the universe and that the earth revolves round me :).

Art has a very tremendous impact on the audience. And especially, inspirational Hindi poems help me stir that emotion deep within my listeners – that call for a better life. I also believe, there is a magnetic pull in Hindi poems, that no other language has. Something that’s difficult to put into words. This blogpost has 5 of those wonderful gems, extremely inspirational Hindi poems about never giving up in life. Chale chalo!
